Tree Talk
Autumn/Winter 2016
Tree Branch
Welcome to the Autumn/Winter issue of Tree Talk.
At this time of year, as the trees start to change colour and the days get shorter, The Tree Council hopes to inspire everyone to enjoy the autumn harvest and attempt to grow a tree from seed during its annual festival, Seed Gathering Season (23rd September to 23rd October). Later on, as the weather turns colder and the bare root tree planting season gets underway, National Tree Week launches on 26th November. The UK's annual and biggest celebration of trees runs until 6th December, rounding off with Tree Dressing Day. Read on for more details of both these campaigns and how you can take part. 
In this issue of Tree Talk we give you an insight into the work of The Tree Council and our volunteer Tree Wardens, update you on our latest activities and invite you to get involved in whatever way you can. If you'd like to get in touch, please send us an email to:

Tree Warden Jackie Cocken has written a charming account of the day her local community came together to create a community orchard at Walsall Arboretum with the help of a grant from The Tree Council. The community is now enjoying the fruits of its labour and has been inspired to carry on planting and caring for trees. Read her story for some tree-planting inspiration.
